Barcelona is home to many different cultures and can offer something for all through out the New Year period. Below are some examples of how to best celebrate in Barcelona.
The tradition embraced by many Spanish and Catalan inhabitants is a family meal on New Years Eve. This can happen in the home or many of the restaurants around the city which creates a great friendly atmosphere where ever you are. Regardless of where you eat in Barcelona at midnight, you will find all the inhabitants and tourists pour onto the street and welcome the New Year.
Why not try something new and embrace the Spanish dance culture by showing your salsa or flamenco skills off in many of the street parties. These can be found in Plaza Catalunya or Las Ramblas and are always packed with locals. The unique Mediterranean atmosphere will ignite any dwindling New Years spirit with its infectious laid back attitude, sangria and flowing tapas.
Barcelona offers so much to all that visit it and all it asks in return is that you enjoy yourself. If you would like to experience something new then a Barcelona New Years Eve is for you. Treat your family and meet the New Year by broadening your mind to a different culture and way of celebrating.
